Backup Fugue for Dos


Back Next


6 March 1998

This is the ultimate backup program! You take a full backup once only, and then subsequent backups are incremental, backing up only the files which have changed since the last backup. The backup copies of the files are placed on the same set of backup disks, giving long term speed increases, simpler file restoration, and improved backup management capability. You have only one set of backup disks to look after. In the event of data loss, you simply restore from the current backup.

Backup Fugue keeps track of what has been backed up, and allows you to browse a tree structure to view what files are on the backup, what has disappeared from the hard disk, and what files have changed and should be backed up. You can mark files in the tree structure for restoration, backup, or deletion from the backup.

Files can be deleted from the hard disk, but retained in the backup for as long as you like. If you make changes to files, but retain the same file names, you can maintain multiple versions of the files on backup, each one separately restorable, so you could compare a previous version of a file with the current one.

Obsolete files are deleted off the backup disks, and the space reused. However, this deletion process does not occur until the new copy has been written successfully to the backup.

Backup Fugue uses compression to save space on the backup. The compression uses industry standard methods, and achieves both high compression ratios and speed.

Backup Fugue can handle any number of hard disks, and any size hard disk (subject to memory constraints). The backup destination can be any size removable disk, including Zip, Syquest and Bernouli removable hard disks.

Backup Fugue will work with DOS, Windows 3.x and Windows 9x/NT. However, to back up   long file names, you need first to run the microsoft program LFNBK.EXE which is found on the Windows 95 CD.
